PobtlaxDjV Aug. 13. A nearh' fatal
accident occurred to Johii Olson, an em
ploye of the Pacific bridge company at
Oregon City, yesterday, while he and
Samuel Bewen were at work repairing
the suspension bridge, upon which are
strung the electric wires of the Willam
ette falls electric light company. Olson
first received a slight shock through an
iron wrench, after which, to show . that
he could stand the shock, he grabbed
the wire with his bare hand, and but for
tha close proximity of Bewen, who seized
and pulled him off, he .would have been
killed. As it is, he has a terribly burned
hand, and an ugly wound in the arm
where the bolt left him, and he will not
recover for some time. The wires from
which he received the shock were carry
ing 4,000 volts, and the men had been
warned of the danger.
Antelope Shade Trees.
Herald. ' There is one thing about the
Antelope country that gives it a tine ap
pearance at first sight, and which shows
the enterprise, taste and goad, judgment
of our citizens. ..That ia the shade trees,
so generally : planted, .'.by everybody.
Theee poplar trees can . be procured
very easily over on the : John Day ox
elsewhere within a distance, of ten
miles from ; here, and ' they" grow very
rapidly, so that if one sets out a small
tree ho may expect to have a lovely, tall
shade tree in two or three years time.
If a man anticipates selling his prop
erty, the very first thing be wants to do
is to set out trees and make the place
look homelike and - inviting. This will
enhance his property ten times more
than anything else he could do.' In
our rich soil here all the attention they
require is a little watering two or three
times a week nntil they get a start.
A Wonderful Cave..
'Spokane Chronicle. A recent visitor
to the petrified moss cave on Lake Pend
d'Oreille thus describes it: "The en
trance was not more than fifty yards
from the lake, though situated at an
elevation of about 100 feet above it in
the side of 'a cliff, which rose abruptly
to the height of about 3,000 feet. The
passage to the natural" curiosities was
through the roots of huge cedar trees.
After entering the cave, and lighting our
tapers, we werd struck with admiration
at the wonderful formations 'which the
lime water, trickling through the roof
for countless ages had effected. Pools
of, ice-cold prater impregnated with
lime lay at our feet in basins, caused by
tne continual drippings irom a Dove, ana
surrounded by moss, which had been
petrified by the properties of the water."
-1 Glacier ' lee. "..' '
Glacier. - Capt. H. C. Coe, J. B. Hunt
and C. L. Gilbert, came to the conclu
sion last Saturday thatlthey wanted
some ice, and as there was none nearer
than Mt. Hood, Capt. -Coo hitched up
four horses, and they all started for the
glacier Sunday.evening, camping at-the
bridge and reaching the glacier at 10 a.
m.", .Monday. They cut out 1,500 pounds
of clear solid ice, packed it a quarter-of
a mile on their horses, and reached town
Monday Morning. The ice is clear, and
exceedingly firm, having been submit
ted to thousands of tons pressure, and
for this reason is Bald to last nearly
twice as long as the common everyday
article. They will get another load to
day. With a railroad to within seven or
eight miles of the glacier, the ice busi
ness would be profitable- ...
. Crops About Antelope.
Herald. Some people from a distance
contend that this inland . country will
never amount to anything for raising
hay and grain. - We can' truthfully as
sert that nowhere In Oregon can - larger
yields, of hay 'and grain be produced
than.right up here in the Antelope sec
tion.' This season Uncle Bill and AH
Eelsay put np eight tons of hay off one
an-i one-quarter acres of land. 'Now if
anyone can beat this, for a dry season,
let him stand up. -

The Dufur school is organhteilr with
reference to the ' needs of a new and
thriving community, upon a basis that
looks to the present "and future needs of
society ; The course of study, while ele
mentary in detail, is comprehensive in
its ' scope; including, the " common
branches, algebra, geometry and trig
onometry, analysis, composition, rhet
oric and .English : literature, natural
philosophy, chemistry, zoology, mental
and moral philosophy, astronomy, an
cient and modern histoiy.
This academic course, being organized
in connection' with the public or com
mon school course, will give pupils an ex
cellent opportunity to study and under
stand school organization, gradation and
school economy. For the study of these
things, together with theory and practice
in the art of teaching, school government
etc., a class will be formed, .and a
coarse of reading and study maintained,
similar in. -most-'--- respects, .though
much shortened, to those in Model
Training Schools for Teachers.
While it isvnotthe intention of the
directors or teachers of the Dufur school
to make it technical, it is considered
best to make the deviation marked out
above, in consequence of the great de
mand for better preparation on the part
of the teachers. Many of those educated
in this school will be called upon fa
teach, which doubtless they will do with
or without any special preparation in an
other school. : We would therefore call
special attention to this feature of otor
school ; and also to the fact that the ac
cademic course offered reaches out to al
most all the elementary principles -that
advance onr civilization, and lead to the
true life of the worthy .citizeiw' ' c- "

' Sax Feaxcisco, Aug. 12. The opera
tions of the rival, clipper line of ships'
doing business between here and New
York -.have led to a largo increase in
freight shipments both east bound and
west bound. Yesterday the ship John
McDonald cleared with over 1,000,000
pounds' of wine, canned goods, dried
fruit and. other merchandise, making
the fourth vessel for .that port in about
six weeks. Three Tessels, the . Tarn O'-.
Shanter, M. P. Grace and Florence, are
in port, -ready for additional cargoes. -Under
the rivalry of two principal com--peting
lines seaboard rates have gone

$3.50 per ton on barley, canned goods,
etc., via Cape Horn, is the lowest "rate
ever quoted for through ehipinents and
represents about $3 per ton for all classes- -of
freight. Forty-two thousand tons are
en route from New York at practically
an open rate of thirty-five cents per 100.
pounds, and 15,000 from. Philadelphia."
rOf the number of vessels loading or on
tr.e way, J. W. Grace & Co., have three,
Balfour, Guthrie & Co., two, " the John
Lock Mercantile company two, and - the
Sutton and California line the others.
With a cut of about one-third, in rates,..
the merchants feel disposed to patronize
the ship owners rather , than the rail
roads. It became known late yesterday -that
the traffic association and a number -of
prominent merchants had subscribed ,
$85,000 to guarantee one of the Clipper
lines against any probable loss conse-.

has been won by the gallantry and ' in--telligence

of the officerawas faulty. Thecampaign
now upon the state must be classed with""
these. There are various potential rea- ,
sons why republican' success is particu-

democrats for governor. He is not a

ing intellect j he would make a dignified,
able governor.' . Lewis is a blatant; bag "
of wind, with a diffusive intellect, and a .
passion for the sensational. . Republican "
success is especially desired this year .
because there are Signs of social disturb
ance and , political crisis and in such
times the republican" party ' ought to"'
have complete control of - the state and
nation. " ". ;"
